 EUROBANK DONATED RSD1.2 MN TO UNICEF FOR PROCUREMENT OF INCUBATORS FOR PROPER CARE OF PREMATURELY BORN BABIES
Eurobank continues to provide support to Serbia’s health care system this year as well with the donation of funds for the procurement of incubators in the value exceeding RSD 1.2 mn, for the Neonatal Hospital Unit in Kragujevac. The donation has been realized following UNICEF’s initiative, with an aim to provide adequate care of newborns suffering from the coronavirus.

Unfortunately, the coronavirus affects the lives of the youngest as well, with ever more newborns infected with the coronavirus. That is why support in the shape of necessary medical equipment is of key importance, because it can save lives of babies infected by COVID-19.

“Support to Serbia’s health care system is one of the pillars of Eurobank’s CSR activities. This time, we have expressed our support by joining UNICEF’s initiative to help the youngest, babies infected by COVID-19. We have provided funds to procure incubators which will help babies fight this dangerous virus, something we find priceless. Naturally, in the future we will continue to fight for the best possible health care system together,” said Slavica Pavlović, President of the Executive Board in Eurobank.

“Eurobank is UNICEF’s long-term partner and we have realized numerous initiatives for children’s welfare together. This donation enables us to additionally strengthen the capacities of the Neonatal Hospital Unit at the Clinical Centre of Kragujevac, which includes as many as 13 birth hospitals for babies from Central and Southeast Serbia. We are grateful to Eurobank on its regular support to UNICEF’s activities in Serbia and its recognition of the importance of the campaign “So small they could fit inside a heart”, directed at the modernization of neonatal services in Serbia. UNICEF is trying to ensure high-quality specialized neonatal care for prematurely born babies, and I believe that in cooperation with so dedicated partners we will succeed in our intention to reduce the death rate of prematurely born babies,” UNICEF’s Vesna Savić Đukić added.

Long-term partnership of Eurobank and UNICEF resulted in numerous campaigns to help the community, and this appeal is one of them.

Support to the entire society and the local community has always been one of Eurobank’s priorities. Immediately after the introduction of the state of emergency in Serbia, Eurobank donated RSD 6 mn for the procurement of necessary medical and personal protective equipment, quickly followed by additional RSD 1.2 mn for the acquisition of oxygen flow meters.
